The Diablo 3 beta has ended in China and the game is now live and open to the public in that region. In China it’s free to play for D3v, with a fee to upgrade to Reaper of Souls, plus all the “stash for cash” features (full details here) that a surprising majority of you guys in the US/EU want as well.

We talk about Quality of Life changes all the time (and even get them, sometimes) and speculate about DLC features (and never get them), so today in clan chat the topic turned to what sort of QoL you’d pay for. Obviously the usual choices are more stash space and character slots, and a lot of you guys have previously approved paying “plat” for those options. (Hypothetically, of course, as we’re not playing in China.)

Yesterday morning Diablo III Game Director Josh Mosqueira gave an hour-long presentation on Diablo III and Reaper of Souls at the annual Game Developers’ Conference. You can watch the whole thing on video, but if you don’t have an hour for that, here’s our transcript, with numerous screen captures to show the key visuals.

Blizzard’s post about the upcoming microtransactions didn’t specify which Realm or region it would apply to, except to say not on the Americas or European realm. Today there’s a post on the Korean Battle.net forums that says… it’s not coming to Korea either. (The Korean post is just a direct translation of the original Microtransactions post, concluding with “not in this region.”)

Blizzard has revealed some more details about the game changes coming in Patch 2.2.0… and they’re big news. Microtransactions are coming, in the form of a platinum currency you purchase for real money, which players can use to buy more stash space, various cosmetic improvements, short term EXP boosts, and some other QoL type features.

Fascinating and very long article by a self-confessed Diablo 3 Auction House botter, talking about how he made over 100k Euros in a year, entirely through buying low and selling high on the AH and RMAH. The article is huge and goes into great detail about everything, including the scripts he used, the multiple machines he had running, and how easy it was to avoid Blizzard’s very lacking anti-botting measures.

It’s the The Last Day of the Diablo 3 Auction House with the shutdown coming up later tonight. It’ll go offline for Americas players during the regular early morning Tuesday maintenance time, and you should check the Auction House FAQ for full details. Now that we’re here, how do you guys feel about this end of an era? The AH has been controversial since it was announced, and while many players have used it extensively and enjoyed it, others feel it’s a terrible game feature (the whole thing and/or especially the Real Money aspect).
